Top 2014 Appliance Trends
One of the most requested items on our buyers wish lists is an open kitchen and great room. Whether we are helping a growing family, empty-nesters or even working professionals one thing people have in common is the desire to have an entertaining space to accommodate gatherings with family and friends. Since the kitchen is now a focal point and the heart of the home, we are seeing an increase in attention to detail in the design and finishes in the kitchen. If you are looking for a new home in Daybreak Utah or planning a renovation to your kitchen this year, here are three of the Top 2014 Appliance Trends.
The matte Slate gray collection (shown above) from GE and the white Ice collection (shown here) from Whirlpool are starting to gain popularity. If you haven't seen the Slate look yet, Holmes Homes uses this appliance package in one of their gorgeous Lake Village model homes in Daybreak Utah. It is the perfect complement to the beachy-cottage kitchen design. The Ice appliances are a revival of the white finish with soft metallic cues to make them look more modern and fresh.
The Slate appliances sold twice as well as expected and so in 2014 we will see more appliance options in these new colors. However, Stainless steel appliances are still a 'runway favorite', according to John Petrie, 2014 president of the National Kitchen & Bath Association. “It’s a good neutral, and it works well in lots of environments'. In terms of color, 2014 is offering more variety and a chance to select an appliance color that fits with both your design and person taste.
You might remember seeing the appliance garages in the 1970's and this year they are making a comeback with a twist. Rather than taking up valuable counter space, today's appliance garages feature more of a built-in look with a pull down door to hide small kitchen appliances, or special pullout drawers are custom made to fit the height of appliances and offer a convenient storage solution. This is a good way to keep the kitchen clutter free while having access to your Coffee Maker, Blender, Standup Mixer, Mini-Cupcake Maker, Cake-pop Baker, Grilled Cheese Press, Popcorn Popper, Bagel Toaster - I could go on but you get the idea!
Even if cooking isn't your passion, commercial appliances are increasing in popularity for homeowners for design purposes. In open concept kitchens, this offers an industrial look that compliments sleek features like white/gray granite counters, metal barstools, brick walls, glossy tile backsplashes, exposed beams, and accent pieces like chandeliers or hanging pot racks. The Destination Homes model home in Daybreak is a charming bungalow with a truly dreamy chef's kitchen. The commercial appliances and huge island create the perfect set up for family dinners and social gatherings.
Beverage centers, like the smaller drink fridges with glass doors are also making a fun addition to kitchens this year. Multi-Function Appliances like side by side ovens, or microwave/oven combinations are gaining in popularity as a good way to maximize space and utility. Let us know if you have seen any other kitchen appliance trends that should make the list! We would also love to see photos of the features you love in your kitchen.
